1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY!

Pros: It was great when it worked.

Cons: Totally my fault, I spilled water on the keyboard while it was on and caused it to not work. So NONE of the local repair shops would touch it. So I had to ship it back to Lenovo, costing $$$ to ship and they charge you about $100 to ship it back. So I get it back in the mail with a letter saying they can't fix it. Mind you, the thing is about two months old and still under warranty. I call up there to see what the deal is, and someone who doesn't speak very good English, basically told me I had a $1100 paperweight on my hands.

Never buying a Lenovo ever, ever, ever again.

4 out of 5 eggsNot Bad

Pros: Works great right out of the box, bought this item to take with me while i was away from home and it worked great for about 6 months.

Played all the games i wanted it to perfectly. BF4 was running at ultra, and when the SLI worked i could actually play BF4 on Ultra.

Cons: After about 6 months the hard drive died, not sure what happened, it did go through 2 baggage claims and was throught around a little so im guessing thats where that happened.

Because the SLI feature does not work with just Windows 8, i had no idea i wasnt running in SLI and when i upgraded to Windows 8.1 it fixed it.

Other Thoughts: Great piece of machinery. Just wish it was a little more durable. but thats okay, hard drives arent a big problem anymore, and you can change HDDs without voiding warranty. (You can access HDD, RAM, NiC, BluTooth and not void warranty.)

4 out of 5 eggsnot terrible

Pros: my first laptop so its difficult to compare it to anything. i like it overall, dual video cards make it a decent workhorse.

Cons: the touchpad has been touched on in many other posts, i use a mouse so hardly ever notice it. the peripheral ports seem loose for some reason, plugged my mp3 into a usb port and it keeps loading up and then losing connection based on any wiggle same for audio when i was watching a movie. the power box is a real clunker and the battery life wont even let me finish a movie without having to plug in but that may be the dual video cards fault, although the second shouldnt be in use for a movie i wouldnt think.

5 out of 5 eggsGood product

Pros: This thing is fast. The high amount of ram makes running virtual machines not something that affects your other usage of this machine. The screen is also great. The back lit keyboard is also extremely nice. Other than the enter key all of the keys feel the same and are consistent.

Cons: It is hard to set up a linux based operating system on this machine due to multiple nvidia graphics cards hence the virtual machines being more important than normal if you don't want to change your work flow. Thankfully the machine has plenty of resources to make this an acceptable compromise for quite a while. The volume buttons also can not be operated with one hand due to the distance between the function key and the arrow keys, where the volume control is.

Other Thoughts: This thing is quite heavy. Not only is the laptop heavy but the power brick is huge. Many have complained about the touchpad, but after a few days you get use to it and it becomes a non-issue. As mentioned earlier the enter key often feels a little different from the other keys, but it still works reliably and is easy to pres, but it does bother me just a bit.

4 out of 5 eggsSo far, mostly good

Pros: To start, I was looking for a laptop that I could use for gaming, work, and school, all in one. The Y510P definitely has the gaming part down. I've played Borderlands, Gone Home, KOTOR 2, Dragon Age Origins, and Broken Age, all at max settings, with no problem at all. I have yet to really put the machine to the really high end test, like Witcher, Battlefield, or Crysis, but so far I do not see why I should be able to play them at max settings.

Windows 8 is functional, although I do like the option to start on a classic desktop.

The keyboard isn't too loud. The light under the keyboard isn't distracting, and the layout of the keyboard and touchscreen are not a problem. Plenty of ports for anything you need to plug in. Also not that heavy.

Cons: I've had more problems just getting set up with the laptop than I would have wished for, but now that everything is finely working correctly, it is great.

The machine comes installed with a lot of bloatware that you do not need. You will have to update Windows 8 and your NVIDIA graphics cards once you get it.

I am not sure if any one else had an issue getting the laptop to connect to their wifi, but that has been the biggest problem I have had. Everything else in my home connects fine, with no problems, but for some reason my Lenovo likes to drop the signal for no apparent reason. I had to mess around with several different solutions before finally arriving at, what I hope, is the solution, as it hasn't kicked me off in a few days.

It runs a little hot while gaming, so I recommend getting a fan. Battery life is also pretty abysmal, at barely running two hours a play session unplugged. I keep mine mostly plugged in though, so it's not that big of an issue for myself.

Also the touchpad is pretty janky. Get a mouse.

Other Thoughts: Overall I think it is everything I have been wanting, despite the issues I had with it to begin with. Very happy.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it

Pros: This laptop does everything I need and then some! It runs Diablo 3 Reaper of Souls on Ultra at nearly 100 fps. Its quiet, you cant hear it running at all, its not overly heavy like my other laptop, the screen is amazing-colors are so sharp. It starts up instantly -my husband is jealous. The sound in it is also very good.

Cons: The only real con I have with it is there is no cd/dvd/bluray drive on it at all....I should have read that when I bought it though. It is worth it if you game digitally though since the drive is replaced by the 2nd Nvidia 750.

Other Thoughts: This laptop is fantastic and he coast for the machine is well worth it. I looked at similar builds from Alienware and they were not as good and cost up to $3,000.

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome Notebook

Pros: Pretty much everything minus the mousepad. This notebook has the most comfortable/sick keyboard I have ever used. Display is amazing. I have had it for a few months now and it handles everything I throw at it. No lag or delays while gaming or video editing.

Cons: Mousepad is terrible but I always use a mouse.

Other Thoughts: Definitely recommend....

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: The Back-lit keyboard is excellent. I travel a lot, and so being able to turn down the screen brightness and type away whilst seated next to a sleeping passenger is indispensable. On that note, the keyboard isn't "loud", but it isn't quiet either. I would say it lands in the middle of the spectrum as keyboards go.

The sound that comes out of this fancy frisbee is relatively crisp. It has enough oomph behind to use it alone in a room for ambiance music during parties.

The display is great. I've seen some rather poor High-res screens, and this isn't one of them. That being said, it isn't the best I've ever seen, but it is more than sufficient for what I do. The only times I've ever wrestled with it is when I am training folks on design programs; the old issue of screen angle and visible contrast pops up. It isn't an enormous frustration, and there is a fairly broad range of screen angles where this isn't an issue. But when it is as just the right angle, you won't be able to distinguish some of the darker colors on the screen.

I do appreciate that the USB 2 and USB 3 ports are on separate sides of the laptop. I work with some legacy plotters that simply do not work on USB 3, so being able to direct the people I train to a specific side of the computer when they are hooking up the machine saves time and provides a teaching point. That being said, I wouldn't mind one more USB port for each side. But I guess that's what expansion ports are for.

When I was shopping for a laptop, I sought one that had a numpad, and with the data entry work I do, I am glad this one is here. *see cons* As squished in as it may be, it has made my life easier.

I play the occasional First-Person Shooter, and I love being able to max out the graphics without loosing frames. This laptop lets me do that (in most cases at least; there have been a few obvious culprits that require settings be left at High rather than Ultra). It does get warm when that happens, and you can feel the heat pouring out of the vent on the left side of the machine. I have a cooling pad that I use whenever I am gaming though, to keep from straining the system too much. But thus far everything has worked as it should in that department.

The system itself is very fairly quick. Of course, I am not one of those person's whom gets disgruntled when something isn't appearing immediately after I click on it, so when that does happen I feel fortunate. That being said, The delay, even after a year of loading a multitude of memory-heavy design and photo/video editing programs and general document accumulation, is minimal - even microscopic. From being turned off, right now it takes about 35 seconds for the computer to turn on and load all my start-up programs, and allow me to right-click and have the context menu appear immediately (which is my test to make sure the system is on/responding). Not too shabby - props to you, Windows 8.

Cons: Occasionally, when the system sits on overnight and isn't used, it will be unable to connect to the internet without going to airplane mode for a few minutes, or restarting the system.

The edges around the mouse pad, speakers, and keyboard (but especially the mouse pad) are recessed and collect a lot of dust and debris, and aren't easy to clean out.

The mouse pad is of a size that, unless you have smaller hands, you will occasionally click the pad whilst typing. This is nitpicky, yes, and you can circumvent it. But it can be a source of frustration, especially when one writes a lot, like I do.

The CD rom drive is very....flimsy. It has put up with the abuse I've doled out thus far, but any time I have to use it (rare as that is in this Age of The Cloud) I am bracing myself for it not to work.

The system comes with a bit of bloat-ware (a.k.a. Lenovo Services). The are easily removed, but I would love to see a laptop that gives you an installation wizard which gives you an option to opt out of such things.

The laptop battery appears to only holds a charge of between 50 and 60%. While this is generally a sufficient amount of time to watch a movie with the machine unplugged (as long as you aren't running much else), it is

On rare occasions the mouse pad stops working. Thus far, it has only occurred when I have plugged in a VGA cable to initiate multiple screens. Sometimes a close-and-open will bring it back, sometimes I have to turn the thing off completely and then turn it on ( a restart didn't work) before function returns. To date, this has happened three times, and it may be a driver issue as much as hardware. It generally isn't a huge issue for me because I keep a wireless USB mouse with me.

*Regarding the NumPad - It is squished in there. It took a couple months of getting used to how pushed together the whole keyboard was before I could effectively use the numpad. The layout of (what I call) the "extra" buttons (Print Screen, Insert, Delete, Home, End PgUp, PgDn) isn't exactly convenient, and I still haven't gotten used to their position in terms of typing work-flow.

Other Thoughts: Okay, so I listed more cons than pros. But when you get what you want you only notice whats wrong with it. I love this laptop. It is the first machine that I've shelled out the cash for to make sure I was getting everything I needed and most of what I wanted. And I am not disappointed. If I wasn't in the business of traveling and teaching the way I do, I wouldn't need something this robust. But that is exactly what this is, and it is ideal for my situation, for the price I paid. So, all in all, I am content. None of the Cons are glaring, and they aren't anything that distract me, or that I even notice regularly. They are simply features of the tool, and I accept them.

5 out of 5 eggsIncredible Value

Pros: A solid value, no other reputable manufacturers can deliver this kind of bang for the buck. machine is snappy and was delivered with minimal bloatware. 24GB Expresscache is a really nice feature and rounds out the 1tb hdd quite nicely. machine is very quiet

Cons: this machine picks up fingerprints faster than the nsa picks up metadata.........

Other Thoughts: those complaining about the touchpad need to understand it is a touchpad, not a gaming mouse/device. Get over yourself and buy a nice mouse. touchpad is awesome for general use. Those complaining about instability need to understand what windows 8.1 update does, and update select drivers appropriately. Lenovo has ocumentation on the upgrade process.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Gaming Machine

Pros: - Runs games on high settings
- 2x 750M in SLi!
- Beautiful monitor
- Great form factor, not bulky

Cons: - Audio connections are on the right side of laptop near front...
- The Ultrabay card was defective. Fan was excessively loud and after calling Lenovo 3 times and having two different parts shipped (an internal graphics card and a DVD-ROM ultrabay...) I decided to RMA the laptop for a refund. Upon calling the third time Lenovo told me to send the laptop back as they do not offer replacement of the Ultrabay card due to it being an "added option"

Other Thoughts: Lenovo has decent support, but I explained the situation multiple times to both service reps and both times confirmed with the rep the correct part number via their own website and was assured that was the part I would be shipped. Neither time was the correct part sent and ultimately it was a time sink for all parties involved. I would recommend the laptop to others, but have decided to go with the new 13.3" Sager/Clevo as the RMA process took long enough for this new laptop to release. If you are looking for a 15" laptop this laptop is great.
